Handyscope HS3

Handyscope HS3, a professional USB oscilloscope.

A 2 channel, 100 MS/s USB oscilloscope with function generator in a small package.

The Handyscope HS3 is a powerful 100 MS/s USB oscilloscope that can also be used as a multimeter, spectrum analyzer, data logger or protocol analyzer. This USB oscilloscope also contains a function / arbitrary waveform generator that is able to produce every signal that is needed. Together with the 2 measurement channels this oscilloscope is an excellent measurement tool to troubleshoot circuits.

Versatile measurement software:

The universal Multi Channel oscilloscope software that is standard delivered with the Handyscope HS3 turns your PC into a storage oscilloscope, a spectrum analyzer, a multimeter, a datalogger/transient recorder and a protocol analyzer. An intelligent auto setup allows the inexperienced user to perform measurements immediately. Complex mathematical operations can be performed live on the measured data. The software allows you to save instrument settings on disk. Later these setting files can be recalled, reducing the setup time of your instrument to an absolute minimum.

Combining multiple Handyscope HS3s:

When one Handyscope HS3 does not offer enough input channels, the Handyscope HS3 can be coupled to one or more other instruments. This allows to make a combined instrument which will enable simultaneous measuring on all channels of all combined instruments.

Fast continuous streaming:

Besides measuring in block mode, the Handyscope HS3 is also capable of performing continuous streaming measurements. This will create a continuous uninterrupted data stream to the computer. The data can then be displayed on the screen and/or saved to disk.

Arbitrary Waveform Generator:

The integrated Arbitrary Waveform Generator operates fully independent from the measuring system of the Handyscope HS3. It has a 50 MS/s sampling clock, a 256K samples deep waveform memory, a 14 bit output resolution and a ± 12 V output range. The arbitrary function generator allows you to generate test signals for your measurements in any shape you like. Several standard signal shapes are available and it is possible to regenerate previously measured signals.


Connected to the fast USB 2.0 (High Speed, 480 Mbit/s), the Handyscope HS3 doesn’t require an external power supply, therefore the Handyscope HS3 easily complies to “Plug in and measure”.
